Quick Coffee Break Reads. 3 Short Stories by Susan Willis.

Quick Coffee Break Reads. 3 Short Stories by Susan Willis.

After a busy time doing whatever you do, isn’t it nice just to sit with the beverage of your choice and relax into a book. Well these short stories by Author Susan Willis are the perfect coffee break read. They are each ten minute reads to give you that quick bookish escapism time between the busy hours of your day.

I was lucky enough to see these 3 books on Amazon available to download for free. At the time of writing this, they are 0.99p each.


Paul’s Romantic Picnic.

Description:
Paul has been given another chance to impress his ex-wife and launches himself into organising a romantic picnic in the countryside. Along with folding chairs and a picnic rug, he has brought wonderful food and a bottle of her favourite wine. But funnily enough his ulterior motives don’t quite go according to plan…

But will Peter actually turn up?

My Thoughts:

These three reads were perfect little mini book breaks for me. At different points in my days, I sat and read each one. They are easy reads with quick plots and believable characters.

My favourite of the three was Meet Me At The Eiffel Tower. It was cute, believable and had a satisfying ending.

The writing on all three books flowed well and took me completely into the stories for the short time I was invested in them.

Having read the Author’s work on these short stories, I am in no doubt that I would enjoy her longer novels.

Fancy a quick read, I highly recommend these little reads.

Book Review: Jane Once More by R G Dow.

Book Review: Jane Once More by R G Dow.

Jane Once More is the sequel to Jane of Manchester, which I reviewed HERE!. I was happy when Author R G Dow approached me asking me to read and review this sequel. Jane of Manchester was a really easy reading book for me, so I was expecting the same kind of ease of read from Jane Once More.

Jane once more

Kindle Edition, 191 pages

Published October 6th 2017 by Dow Books

Description:

Jane is back and so are her friends and family but time stands still for no-one, as they say, and so has she moved on at all with her life?

Carrying on from the first book, Jane of Manchester, there is plenty of fun left to be had as Jane and her friends continue to have a laugh in the city, but change may be just around the corner…

More giggles, good times and drama from Jane and the crew!

My Thoughts:

Jane Once More was as I expected after the first book, it was easy reading. And as with the last book, I listened to it on audiobook while I was doing more monotonous things, like ironing and preparing lunches!! I didn’t need to concentrate much on the story as it followed Jane’s life, her work, friends and family, and also lots of her take aways!

Jane Once More follows the life of a ‘normal’ British girl, with the exception of the lack of social media, which was actually really refreshing as she saw and spoke to her friends and family, She texted a lot, but it was to meet them.

The book is almost written as diary style, (without the days and dates). Jane’s life is not particularly exciting, but she has a good group of friends, colleagues and family. Between hearing about them all and following Jane on her day to day goings on, the reader feels like they know Jane and almost particpate in her life with her.

As a real foodie, I liked all the eating in and out discussions. There was also the development of a relationship in this novel, of which there were none in the last book.

*(It is not essential to read the first book before this, but it will give more of a background if you do).

Jane Once More is a fun easy read. I am expecting another book to follow this one, as it was left with the scope to continue.
